The first thing you notice when this item drops through the letter box is it's not as large as you would expect, it is not much bigger than a pocket dictionary so as you can imagine the pictures inside are on the small size... As you would expect at the front of the book there is a list of contents but instead of been 4 or 5 pages long it goes on for 22 pages, what a waste of paper!
The price's listed are, in most case's,way out and also are in $'s.
The information contained on each toy line is too brief and could (and should) have been much better with a bit of effort.
Some of the information was useful but overall I was disappointed with this offering from Tomart's.

This book is the only way I can figure out which action figure is who. Great book, small enough to fit my pocket.

Pretty good if a bit basic! Good overview of major and minor action figure lines!

HASH(0x9558c7d4) out of 5 stars A great book about action figures in general 28 Jun. 2004
By El Tonio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very nice reference book. Rather than giving a lot of detail about one type of action figure line, it provides a little history/information on lots of action figure lines. This book literally covers 1001 well know and more obscure action figure lines... it was very fun to read/reminisce. This is a hardcover book with 100s of color photos on full glossy paper. It contains at least one picture (and usually more) of virtually every action figure line. Most of the photos are small, but still worthwhile. I was pleasantly surprised to see so much information and so many pictures in such a small book (it is about 6" by 7", 350 pages, and a little over 1" thick). I collect mostly Star Wars and Mego figures, but often come across other figures when exploring. This was the perfect reference book for such a situation. This book also provides a general value for each figure line (the estimates seemed to be at least as good as other price guides). I bought my copy used for around $5 plus shipping (it arived in PERFECT condition). But, I'd say it is easily worth twice that... maybe even more.

HASH(0x95b0b0cc) out of 5 stars ACTION FIGURES 20 Jan. 2011

IF YOU LIKE ACTION FIGURES YOU WOULD LOVE THIS BOOK. IT HAS FULLY COLORED PICTURES AND DESCRIPTION OF ALL THE BEST ACTION FIGURES THAT WHERE AVAILABLE FROM 1959 TO 1997.
HASH(0x95b06fb4) out of 5 stars Nice pictures period. 24 April 2016
By David Beatham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a collector all I can say is this is an OK book, and yes I read every entry cover to cover, it has a lot of nice pictures. That's the end of the positives. This Book is full of inaccurate facts and only tells you about the figures that are shown in the picture, it almost seems like someone took all the pics and then an uninformed person just wrote about what they could see and guess, so much data is just wrong and incomplete, which is a shame since I enjoyed the 3 part encyclopedia also put out by Tomarts so much. So cause of the pics I give it 2 stars, and nothing else
